I should know better than to think things would keep moving in the right direction. Last night Ava got pretty bad (compared to where she has been). They did a chest x-ray and found fluid built up around her lung, which in turn causes it to be very hard for her to breath. This morning they ended up putting her on a flow of 2 liters and 60% O2 and she is just barely where she needs to be in terms of her saturation. The poor baby looks so sad and scared to me when she is awake. She is just working so hard to breath. When she is sleeping she looks peaceful for the most part, so I think she can get pretty comfortable. They are going to take her down to interventional radiology and put in another chest tube today around 5:00. She will be sedated, so depending on how she reacts to that she may end back up on the ventilator. I pray that she can stay off and that if she does end up back on it they can take her back off when she wakes back up.
Nate and Kaden are going to be on their way back up tomorrow night!!! I am thinking that we might try to watch Horton Hears A Who again, we did get those passes we need to use. I have to remember to have Nate bring up the big battery...so babe, if you are reading this please bring it up ...we both know how "great" my memory is. I am so excited to see Mr. Kaden. I know this sounds funny, but every time I see him after him being gone he looks so much bigger. Nate has decided that he is going to teach Kaden how to play golf. I think that would be a great sport for him...besides that, I guess he was very interested in the golf clubs at the store. I would love to watch him play golf. Could you imagine him the size of a football player (which is how I imagine him) playing golf : )!!!
